get the door open with a 'slim jim' or any way you can (coathanger) and remove the door panel to repair.. also everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :)

How do you open 1994 Toyota Corolla backdoor with child lock on and outside handle is broken?

Bit of a hassle, but I think I would take out the back seat, you could then slip something between the door and the frame and flip the child lock. Look at the other door to locate where the lock is in relation to the door. If this doesn't work, with the seat out, you should be able to remove the door panel and gain access to the lock from the inside and open it .
